Intel teases next-gen 56C/112T CPUs for 2020 still on 14nm

On the eve of AMD's launch of its EPYC Rome CPUs, competitor Intel has announced that its future Intel Xeon Cooper Lake family of CPUs will have server versions with up to 56C/112T of power.

Intel detailed the future of its Xeon Scalable platform at its Data-Centric Innovation Summit that it's bringing its 56C/112T Xeon Platinum 9200 family to Cooper Lake. The reason? For the new bfloat16 instructions mixed with the high 28-core count CPU as well as the new Cooper Lake CPUs being socketed versus BGA only.

This means the new Xeon Platinum 9200 family on Cooper Lake is on the LGA4189 socket -- the same as the upcoming Ice Lake CPU coming after Cooper Lake. The new Xeon Platinum 9200 chips will have 8-channel DDR4 support and TDPs of up to

Intel embarrassingly bragged (maybe they were sniffing too much glue) that AMD's first Zen-based EPYC processor was "glued-together" in its own internal presentations back in 2017, but fast forward to its new CPUs and the 56C/112T Cooper Lake CPU has two dies on the same chip.

Intel Cooper Lake CPUs:

CPU - cores/threads - base/boost clocks - L3 cache - TDP

  • Xeon Platinum 9282 - 56C/112T - 2.6/3.8GHz - 77MB - 400W
  • Xeon Platinum 9242 - 48C/96T - 2.3/3.8GHz - 71.5MB - 350W
  • Xeon Platinum 9222 - 32C/64T - 2.3/3.7GHz - 71.5MB - 250W
  • Xeon Platinum 9221 - 32C/64T - 2.1/3.7GHz - 71.5MB - 250W

We don't have any word on price just yet, but expect it to be expensive AF. Right on the heels of the EPYC Rome launch with 64C/128T on offer. We should expect the flagship Xeon Platinum 9282 to be somewhere between $25,000 and $50,000 per processor, which is insanity compared to what AMD is going to unveil in a few hours.
